8 / 10
What Casiokids lack in snappy album titles, they certainly make up for in snappy album contents. Chock full of Casio chintz, languid basslines and the general feeling of being at some kind of tropical knees up, it’s essentially the interim album Joe Mount might have made between ‘Nights Out’ and ‘The English Riviera’, with a little Vampire Weekend thrown in. The brilliantly monikered ‘Dr Tarzan Monsoon’ floats by on hazy 3am keyboard lulls, while single ‘Det Haster!’ is all parping synths and cooing, coy vocals. This album is a subtly, sweetly wonderful thing – proof that, sometimes, sonic actions speak louder than words.
